Well, assuming you have an FSFS repository and your Ubuntu system
comes with Apache 2.0, I'm quite sure your Subversion is linked
against APR-0.9. All 1.0+ versions of Subversion can be either linked
to APR-0.9 or APR-1.x, but it'll need to be the same APR as Apache, if
you use mod_dav_svn to access the repository.

For 2GB+ files to work with APR, you need 1.2.6 though, which contains
crucial fixes to make the 1.0 support actually work.

1. Yes, probably.
2. See (1)

Well, Linux does support it, but APR/Apache didn't sufficiently...
